Re: cygwin-1.5.14 crashes with memory fault?

If you can suggest how to debug Cygwin-1.5.14 when I can't bring up a
window, since I immediately get a memory exception, I'd be glad to try.
It's true that the only change in my Cygwin system just before installing
1.5.14 was the standard setup install of the new tetex utils.

I'm not sure what you mean by "can't bring up a window". Cygwin doesn't need a window. Run cmd.exe, then run cygcheck, assuming you've put the cygwin directory in your PATH. Don't run bash, nor rxvt. Those are just other utilities that run using cygwin. But cygwin will work from CMD.EXE as well.
